Parents are requested to attend a Nutcracker Meeting in person at 11:00-11:15am on Sunday September 25.
There should be a parent/guardian from each household in attendance. This meeting will give parents the information about designated responsibilities for the safety of their children during the term of the rehearsals and production. Parent Volunteer Forms will be provided and we will discuss the many volunteer positions that need to be assigned every year, such as: backstage assistants, dressing room “moms” for each group of dancers, gift table attendants, concessions, set up and tear down teams, etc. These are necessary and vital roles to our production, therefore, we encourage parents, other family members and friends to sign up for these duties. You will find that, if past years are the measure, these positions can be a lot of fun, an amazing experience and the key to a smooth and memorable Nutcracker production.
